Day Dreaming of the Beach

Day Dreaming of the Beach
May 2010
30.5" x 17.5"
Oil on Panel

   I think this painting is fairly self explanatory. While I was going through some rough stuff this past fall I came across this image. I held onto it for a couple of months. Then a great man walked into my life and I started this painting. I like to think that this was a good kick off to sunshine both in season and in my life. This painting took me a ridiculously long time to complete, over two months. I would dabble with it here and there. I think I did this mostly because I didn't want to have to stop painting it. I took great pleasure in painting it. I didn't want it to end. The second photo is a close up shot of my favorite part of the painting.
   I have been fortunate enough to have nice weather and traveled to the beach last week. I look forward to many trips to the beach this summer. When winter arrives I may take a few more day dream paintings of the beach.
   Yay Summer! Warmth to my life and soul. Hot sand and warm breezes. Family, friends, love and laughter. Ahh...
